ui-bootstrap

Adds a complete Ember Bootstrap 4.x eco-system

THIS IS CURRENTLY A WORK IN PROGRESS ... it works but it will be "ready" pretty soon

Installation

# if you want to use SASS (recommended)
ember install ember-cli-sass
# then, either ...
ember install ui-bootstrap
# - or -
ember install ui-bootstrap-plus

Installing ui-bootstrap will install Bootstrap 4.x locally to your project as an NPM dependency. If you install ui-bootstrap-plus then it will include all of these complimentary plugins as well:

Note: starting with Bootstrap 4, glyphicons are no longer included in Bootstrap and are not part of this addon either. If you want some Ember help in using icon-libraries try ui-icon

Usage

SASS / CSS

This plugin detects if you've installed the ember-cli-sass addon. If you have it will use SASS, not then it will fallback to CSS (you'll get an info message in this case when you run ember serve).

SCSS

To get your Bootstrap mojo you'll need to include the following line to your app.scss:

@import 'bootstrap';
// ... or ...
@import 'bootstrap-flex';

One of the really nice things about BS4 is that it can optionally use flexbox for all it's spacial positioning. You do lose a tiny bit of browser support but not much these days.

Note: that by importing either of the two above you are importing all of Bootstrap and that maybe more than you need. You can, when using SCSS, selectively import only what you need. As a targeted optimization for people using this plugin and sticking to it's no-JS metaphor you can use ui-bootstrap and ui-bootstrap-flex as more optimized targets.

CSS Users

If you are stuck using CSS rather than SCSS, you will need to change the options for this plugin in your environment.js file:

var ENV = {
  uiBootstrap: {
    useSASS: false
  }
}

That's all that's needed but of course with this change you loose the ability to modify the SCSS variables which Bootstrap exposes.

JS / Components

The philosophy with this addon is to NOT include bootstraps JS as in most cases there are better ways to achieve these goals with Ember addons. See our approach to each of these components below, and in the next section we'll discuss how to enable or disable various aspects.

In addition, where Bootstrap components don't have any javascript dependencies we have added Ember composable components. See the "component" tab on the demo site to find out more.
